selling your home on scheduleYou have decided to sell your property. There are a few basic questions you want to start with. What is your motivation for selling, and how sure are you that you want to sell? Is it a good time to put the home on the market? If so, what is an acceptable timeframe for selling your home? And most importantly, what is the right price? Having clarity on these items is the first step toward a successful home sale.

Why Did You Decide to Sell?

Are you moving to a new area because of your career? Or simply looking for a lifestyle change? Will you be upsizing to a bigger more expensive home? Or downsizing to a more manageable property? How will you use any earnings from the sale? While your reasons may be clear, whether or not the sale will enable you to achieve your goals is often less clear. It's important to have realistic expectations of how much your home can sell for. And if it's enough to justify your decision to sell.
